What are Braces?
Braces can help to get your teeth perfectly straight and aligned. It is not uncommon to have mild, moderate or even severe crowding and crookedness. When your teeth are dealing with orthodontic problems, you will find that it has an impact on your self-esteem as well as your ability to brush and floss your teeth properly. Our goal is to provide you with high-quality orthodontic treatment that can help you achieve your dream smile.
Why are Braces needed?
Braces are ideal for all types of patients regardless of age. Many children and teens can benefit from braces, but they can be just as beneficial for adults. Some of the problems that braces can fix include:
- Misaligned and crooked teeth
- Spaces and gaps
- Over and under bites
- Malocclusion problems
Who is a good candidate for Braces?
Most patients who need orthodontic care can safely come in and have treatment started. Treatment is unique for each individual person coming into our office. Dr. Alfonso will examine your teeth to determine if you would be a good candidate for braces. Treatment using braces can be helpful for patients of all ages.
What happens during the treatment for Braces?
The treatment process will begin with a consultation that will include x-rays and impressions. This allows us to create a treatment plan that is just right for you. Dr. Alfonso will then fit you with braces and you will be instructed to come back in after a few weeks. These monthly appointments are essential for keeping up with treatment. It is important to fit these appointments into your schedule so that treatment isn’t prolonged or delayed. After a few months to several years, the braces are removed and you can benefit from a full, healthy smile. Treatment varies from one patient to the next, and the length of time you’re in braces will depend on how severe your orthodontic problems currently are.
